Lots of Links for FREE FONTS

I just thought of something that may be of help to lots of people. I have links to so many font sites and most are where you can download fonts free. If you have any problem with them please let me know so I can fix or take off list. If these help you in any way please leave a comment to let me know.

Most Font sites have Dingbats, just check their category list but here are a couple.

More helpful sites, their link sort of speaks for itself.

All About Me

I think I am going to open up and talk about my problems in the hopes that someone else can relate to them. I have chronic back and leg pain and have had it for about 10 years now. When it first started I was constantly going to the Emergency Room for pain relief. It was just unbearable and I had no insurance. Then I finally was able to get on disability and get medicare and my family doctor referred me to a back specialist. After looking at my MRI he said my back was terrible and referred me to pain management so I could get injections. But, wait I skipped ahead a little, I had already been to chiropractors, 2 different ones with neither helping my pain after weeks and then I went to physical therapy at 2 different times with no help just increasing pain. Then that was when I went to the back doctor. Anyway he had referred me to pain management and I had 4 different injections and went to her for a couple of years with no help just continued with pain pills. Then due to her problems with Medicare she stopped seeing all Medicare patients so I had to seek another pain management doctor. I was referred to one and after he wanted to totally start over with an MRI and injections and I said I could not afford all that because I was still trying to pay bills from other medical expenses that medicare did not cover as they only pay 80% and I was responsible for other 20%. So he said for me to check with the family doctor and see if they would continue to give me my pain meds and that is where I am at now except they will not change the meds in any way and my pain is getting worse or I am getting immune to the pain medications. I really don't know what to do, they can refer me back to the pain management doctor but he will want to do the MRI and repeat injections and I really cannot afford that but I am back to suffering most of the day with the pain.

The above is why I have not been creative for quite a while. I would love to continue offering FREE creations for all to enjoy but I just don't have enough time without the pain to be creative. If anyone else is experiencing anything like this please tell me about it and how you received help in any way. Thank you and God Bless

No Guesses for Photo

Sorry I have no guesses for the last photo I posted.

But I do have something for you...

Create Matching Background From Your Photo

  1. File, New, Blank File and Box opens, Click on Preset, Dropdown will appear and choose Scrapbooking. It will be a 12” x 12” and then make sure Resolution is 300 and Background color is white.
  2. File, Open and choose a photo. Works best with many different colors in your photo.
  3. Choose Rectangular Marquee Tool. Go to top where it has the options and Click on 1st Block, New Selection, then Feather set to 0,  Mode drop down choose Fixed size. Then Width 1 px and Height 3600 px.  Note: I also tried Width at 10 px which is what my Plaid Lot of Colors Sample is.
  4. Click at the top of your photo and a line will appear where ever you click. Try to make it so the line goes down through as many colors in the photo as you can get.
  5. Choose Edit and Copy.
  6. Now go to your White layer. And Choose Edit , paste. 
  7. Choose your move tool and you will be able to see the line and the 4 arrows. Click on each one and stretch to the edge and then click checkmark to confirm your action.
  8. Now duplicate that layer.Go to Image at the top and Rotate that copy to the left. (make sure you are on the copied layer)
  9.  Then Stay on the copy and Reduce the Opacity to 50 %. 
  10. Then Merge the two layers and you have your plaid to match your photo.

And Now for some FREE Backgrounds. In case you want to have a few without the work. You can download from the following link.

Hope you enjoy.
God Bless

Back Again with Freebie for You

It's been a while but I finally have something for you to download Free. I hope you like. These are some fabrics that my Sister in law shared with me and I photographed them so I thought I would share with you. They will make great backgrounds for your scrapbooking or texture for embellishments and you may even figure out other uses for them. I created them in 12 x 12 size Because it's better to have larger than small. You can reduce sizes but can't enlarge them very well. Please share a comment. I would love to know how you use them.

Just click on this link and in case you are not familiar with, when Box opens just go to the right and click options and then Download Folder.

1930's Fabric Backgrounds

Till Next Time
